Near the beginning of the school year, the grade 8’s went on a hiking trip to Garibaldi. I was in the intermediate so we went to Checkamus Lake and hiked up to meadow area near the top. The hike was a good level for me. It wasn’t too steep, but also it wasn’t just all flat ground. Cooking outside and making our own food was lots of fun, since I don’t usually cook at home. Also sleeping with my friends and setting up the tents was so much fun as I was with most of my friends. It was a great time and I really enjoyed it.
